Below average martial arts comedy with one joke
24 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Men are gambling on a small boat. Hon Kwok-Choi flashes a wad of cash and Ku Feng creates a disturbance to steal it. Bruce Leung, with eyeglasses and a missing tooth, is accused and they fight. Ashore they both are hired as the new kung fu teacher and continue to fight. Bolo is the bad guy responsible for the death of the previous teacher. The protection guys are making rounds and the deaf mute student beats them. Bolo is angry. The girl, Mei Mei, beats up both our two guys. Exposed as fakes, she warns them to get out of town before they get killed like her father. Yet they keep beating up every challenger Bolo sends. However, Bolo clobbers them both. So they combine skills, Bruce can only kick and Hon Kwok-Choi can only punch.

One joke does not make a comedy movie. This movie has one joke, repeated for about 50 minutes. At that point the drunken master enters the story. Our guys are run out of town and they meet up with Ku Feng again. Now we have a trio with Ku Feng as their teacher. First a warning, fast forward past the animal cruelty scene at about 1:05:00 first.

Any fan of these movies recognizes the names and faces of Ku Feng, Bruce Leung Siu-Lung and Hon Kwok-Choi. They were among the greatest of this genre so how bad can any movie be with all three of them starring? This is how bad. Any one not a fan of this genre could never sit through this movie. Though it is a pleasure to watch them in action it is just the same action over and over and they have done it all better in other movies.
